  • Syria missile attack 'false alarm', state media says

"Last night, a false alarm that Syrian air space had been penetrated triggered the blowing of air defence sirens and the firing of several missiles", a military source said.

The reports did not say who carried out the pre-dawn strikes, which were reported by Syrian state TV and the government-run Syrian Central Media.

Pro-Syrian regime outlets and social-media accounts had reported that air defences had foiled a missile attack on Shayrat air base near Homs, the same location that was targeted in USA missile strikes previous year.

Syria said on Tuesday that a "false alarm" had activated its air defences, retracting earlier statements of an overnight missile attack on the central province of Homs.

Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said missiles did not hit any of the air bases.

The tripartite Western aggression occurred days after the United States accused the Syrian government of an alleged attack with chemical weapons in the city of Duma, Eastern Ghouta region, an accusation rejected by the authorities of this country.

Pan Arab al-Mayadeen TV said the targeting of the Dumair airbase comes a day before a deal was to be reached for the evacuation of rebels from that area.

Pentagon spokesman Eric Pahond said there was "no U.S. military activity in that area at this time", according to The Jerusalem Post.

Earlier Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said the inspectors could not go to the site because they needed approval from the UN Department for Safety and Security. "We have not denied the team any request for it to go to Douma".

Asked about reports of the missile attack, an Israeli military spokesman said, "We don't comment on such reports".

With flags of Syria, Russia, Iran, Hezbollah and Cuba, the assembled, among them young people and women, denounced in a combatant march that the United States and its lackeys of United Kingdom and France bite the dust of the defeat when suffering the demolition of their missiles.
